Seed Packet Ornament


Seed Packet Ornament

I found these cute seed packets on clearance for TEN CENTS at the local dollar store and just could not resist them! I really did not have an idea in mind but after a little thinking I came up with a way to use them on my seasonal garland.

Of course this would be just as easy to make the ornament with a spring or summer theme.   So save those empty seed packets from the trash and up-cycle them to a new life on your seasonal wreath or tree.

Materials Needed

  • Seed Packets
  • Buttons
  • Raffia
  • Cardstock

Also Needed

  • Cosmos Flower Punch
  • Pinking Shears
  • Glue
  • Glue Dots
  • Hole Punch

Instructions

  1. Empty the seeds from the packet.  I am saving mine to be planted per the package direction.
  2. Glue the seed packet to a piece of cardstock and allow to dry.
  3. Cut around the packet leaving a 1/4th to 1/2 th inch border.
  4. Punch two holes in the top of the seed packet and attach a raffia hanger.
  5. Punch two cosmos flowers from contrasting cardstock.
  6. Glue the two punches together and attach a button to the center with a Glue Dot.  Bend the petals of the upper punch up around the button.
  7. Attach the flower to the seed packet.
